Thirty five out of the thirty-six weeks of the Wesleyan school year are filled with countless assessments, Bible papers and piles of homework; Homecoming Week is the one week out of the year where school becomes a little less serious. It is a time where students trade the uniforms for silly costumes and this year, the school went from a normal high school in Georgia to the red carpet in Hollywood.
This February, Wesleyan students are trading their khaki pants (and plaid skirts) for their best 1920’s outfits in honor of the “Flappers and Fellas” themed Winter Dance. This year’s winter dance is an opportunity for the girls to ask the boys and for Wesleyan students to spend a night partying like it’s 1920.
The countdown to homecoming has already begun, and this year’s theme is Ancient Civilizations: A Celebration for the Ages.
During Homecoming week, students dress up for different themes each day, and Friday is focused on the Ancient Era. Each grade has a different theme all contributing to the big picture of Ancient Civilizations. On Friday, seniors will become ancient figures and rulers, juniors will transform into the structures and ancient artifacts, sophomores will be the building blocks of society and freshmen will take on the end of an era.
On Saturday Feb. 25, high school students gathered in Chandler Plaza for the annual Sadie Hawkins dance. This year, attendees came dressed in their best Western attire, as the theme was “Kick up the Dust.” Keep Reading
Sadie season is rapidly approaching, which means the tides have officially turned. The guys get to sit back and relax, while the girls take on the role of coming up with ridiculously cheesy puns in order to ask that special someone to the dance.
This girls-ask-boys winter dance has been on Wesleyan’s annual calendar for nine years, thanks to Student Government Advisor and Student Activities Director, Brian Krehmeyer.
Krehmeyer proposed changing Sadie into a winter dance where dates were not encouraged, but the Student Government Staff overruled the vote and decided to keep the Sadie as is.
